Great service! Took care of my stuck roof on my Mercedes, and pointed out a few things to also consider fixing soon.

I've been coming here for years with my 2006 M3. They always do the best work and tell me what is recommended vs necessary. I've even been surprised when I thought something was a big deal and they told me it was only a small issue. Great, Honest crew!

Decent shop but was charged for duplicative labor. Shop quotes mechanic hours out of book but that is based on a single job. IE charged labor for replacement of a thermometer and water pump when technically they go right by the thermometer to replace the pump. One hour extra would have been suitable but not charging more than four hours. That said, work has been solid and if you have a single job or don t need care about such things - they do seem to know German and European vehicles.

They replaced a couple of gaskets three weeks ago, then another leak, this time coolant. And an alternator replacement. they quoted me 600-700 but the final bill was 1200 -- They needed more parts and labor. They also found a leak, said it would cost another 1000 or so. I opted not to have the work done. they seem nice and knowledgeable.

Question Answered by AE German Car Service | German Car Specialists
Needthe Code For My Radio Reset on 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320
Hi,
Usually the radio code comes with the documents of your car and the manual.
If you don't have them you can call the dealership and with the VIN# they will be able to retrieve the radio code for your vehicle.
